Partition Errors solved

Postby VinylBassist on Tue Apr 07, 2009 9:36 pm

Hello, i am trying to install Linux Mint 6 off of the Live CD and when i go to partition the drives it gives me an error message saying that it cannot partition the drives. while going under Manual mode, i see that it wont let me edit the windows partition size, and it is unable to tell me the amount used for the partition reading as... unknown. I fear that i am plagued by a corrupt NTFS file system (im really hopping its not the HDD). soo i know i haven't given any useful information, but is there anything i can do?


also, i VERY impressed with this distro so far, i nearly wet myself when the live cd loaded up, and my internet, sound, and graphics worked! :shock:

impressive guys! keep it up!

Edit: I just decided to backup and Nuke my Windows partition anyways, besides, windows sucks (thats why im switching to Linux)

so far so good! :D

Edit2: Linux Mint IS the future of computers!

thanks guys for making this! this has been my best Linux experience yet!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
